If rRF (risk free rate of return) = 3%, rM (Market rete of return) = 8%, and b(beta)= 1.2, D0 (dividend today) = $2 and g (growth rate of dividend) =4% (constant), how much is the stock price)?
Calculate the WACC which represents the “hurdle rate” for a typical project with average risk using midpoint of the range of the marginal cost of common equity using retained earnings or new earnings.
A 15-year, 12% coupon, semiannual payment non-callable bonds sell for $1,153.72. New bonds will be privately placed with no flotation cost.
A 10%, $1,000 par value, annually dividend, perpetual preferred stock sells for $1,111.
Both an existing common stock and a new common stock issue, which incurs a flotation cost of 15% of the proceeds, sells for $50. D1 = $4.3995 and g = 5%. b = 1.2; rRF = 7%; RPM = 6%.
Bond-Yield Risk Premium = 4%.
Target capital structure: 30% debt, 10% preferred, 60% common equity.
Tax rate is 40%.
HINTS: Use the formula, WACC = wdrd(1 – T) + wprp + wcrs
